Sinead's row with Miley tops list of 2013 celebrity bust-ups

THE row between Sinead O'Connor and Miley Cyrus has topped a list of the biggest celebrity feuds of the year in Rolling Stone magazine.

The spat, which grabbed headlines around the world, features on the music magazine's list of the 20 Biggest Feuds and Meltdown of 2013.

Superstars including Kanye West, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Selena Gomez also make the dubious list of "freakouts and twitter rants".

The public argument aptly began on the pages of the famous magazine in an interview with the former Hannah Montana actress turned pop superstar when she credited the Irish singer for inspiring her Wrecking Ball video.

"It started innocently enough: Miley referenced O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2 U video as an inspiration for her own Wrecking Ball clip", explained Rolling Stone.

"But O'Connor used that as an invitation to pen Cyrus an open letter, advising Miley to not let the music industry 'make a prostitute out of you'."


Cyrus responded – on Twitter of course – by poking fun at Sinéad's past public emotional breakdowns, comparing her to US actress Amanda Bynes and posting a photo of O'Connor's controversial ripping of the Pope's photo on Saturday Night Live.

But the magazine concludes that the American star involved herself in the row to drum up publicity for her appearance on the iconic American spoof show, Saturday Night Live, to plug her new album.
